The READ/PRINT programming language is an educational tool used to teach basic computer science concepts. The language's syntax is straightforward, comprising input and output commands. In READ/PRINT, a program starts by reading data that can be stored in memory or directly enters into the computation process through computation operators. Then, results are shown by printing the output on the screen. This simple sequence of read-compute-print mimics how a computer might interact with real-world scenarios; it helps students understand fundamental operations in programming and early-stage algorithm design without getting bogged down in complex syntax or semantics found in more advanced languages like Python or Java.
